The New York Times is having technical issues. Again. For the second time this month, NYTimes.com is down. We first noticed the outage a little before 3 pm, which makes it quite a significant mishap for the paper.
About two weeks ago, NYTimes.com went dark due to what a spokesperson called “a scheduled maintenance update.”
We’ve reached out to the Times for comment about this new outage. Until then, enjoy a hit song from 1996.
Update (4:25 pm):
Admitting you have a problem is the first step toward recovery:
The New York Times Web site is experiencing technical difficulties. We are working on fully restoring the site.

Update (4:27 pm):
A Times spokesperson just tweeted that the outage is “most likely result of malicious external attack. Working to fix.”
